Twas the Night Before Christmas...

Kody and I are loading up the car early this afternoon with Bailey and heading to Edmond for Christmas! I am really looking forward to going to Christmas Eve service with my family tonight. I haven't been able to go with them since we have been married. We always roll in about midnight from Waynoka. Our work schedules are limiting our travel plans this Christmas. It will actually be kind of nice, even though I love getting to see everyone.

Robin flew in from Tucson last night. There were seven people on her flight, which went through Dallas, going from Tucson to Oklahoma City. They almost missed their connection in Dallas. The group sent Robin running from their gate to the OKC gate. When she got there the door was already closed, but the pilot was just walking to the door. She told him there were seven of them on their way and she would be happy to buy him "some adult beverages" when they landed. He told her the door wasn't really closed until he got on the plane so he would hold it for them. They all got put up in first class. I need to travel with Robin more often. She knows how to work they system in the most fantastic way.

I can't wait for all the goodies my mom makes. She is making me coconut date balls (heaven!) and the peanut butter bars I love. We are having pancakes on Christmas morning. My mom knows how to make me happy!

I hope everyone has a very Merry Christmas!
